About this Project

How Love Won takes a look inside the “Vote No” campaign led by Minnesotans United for All Families. It traces the research that led to a groundbreaking campaign that worked to change minds by connecting voters to the emotional aspects of the issue. Through interviews with campaign workers, LGBT leaders, social science experts, and same-sex couples, How Love Won paints the portrait of a powerful campaign at a unique time in history. How Love Won was produced by Michael McIntee with support from The UpTake.
